Ladies face Tottenham tonight
MARTINO Chevannes is under no illusions about the size of the task his QPR Ladies side face against in-form Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night (kick-off 7.45pm).
The pair meet at Honeycroft in the FA Women’s Premier League, with Spurs still unbeaten this season having won all three of their games so far in all competitions.
Meanwhile, Rangers return to action after a damaging 4-0 defeat at C&K Basildon on Sunday which saw injuries to goalkeeper Victoria Caldwell and Jenny Critchley compound matters.
“We’re going through a difficult period right now,” Chevannes told www.qprlfc.co.uk. “We already had players out through injury, and that situation has now only worsened.
“But we can’t dwell on it; we’ve got to pick ourselves up and I’m confident once we get some key players back we’ll see a different QPR.”
As for tonight’s vistors, Karen Hills' side arrive second in the table following Sunday’s 1-0 win at newly-promoted Crystal Palace.
“We know we’re in for one hell of a task,” Chevannes admits. “Karen’s assembled a very good squad, and they’ve shown their intent with their early season form.
“Their confidence will be high and they’ll be coming here thinking they’ve got a guaranteed three points – it’s up to us to make it as difficult for them as possible to get them.”
